31 August 2016 Current Affairs: India's first military heritage website, coloursofglory.org was launched by Glory Foundation at Chennai. A veteran of the 1971 Indo-Pak war, city based Captain D.P.Ramachandran who is also the executive trustee of the foundation declared the war heroes of South India held great significance to the history of India.
The Foundation will conduct various awareness programs across the country, commencing with major metros, to educate the people about our military history and heritage. The programs will be in the nature of exhibitions, seminars and talks, film shows, sound-and-like shows and the like.
The Foundation is also planning battle re-enactments or military tattoos, which used to take place in Madras (Chennai) before Independence. The British, for instance, arranged a military tattoo of the Siege of Madras in 1946. We want to bring those enactments back.
